Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication
All their children were females, they
Tried to get a male child, and in the process
Of trying to give birth to a male child that
Was what pushed them to give birth to five
Children. Their resolution when they were dating was
That they would give birth to 3 children. When they
Were mating for the fifth pregnancy, they had resolved
That whatever be the outcome of the pregnancy they would
Accept it and would not make attempt to call another child
From the world beyond into the physical world again.
Thus, when she puts to bed the fifth time and the baby turns
Out to be female again, they said to themselves that they
Have gotten to their final bus stop as per given birth to
Children according to their agreement. What they resolved to
Be doing after this is praying that the Creator blesses those children.
Those children were growing in wisdom and the knowledge and
They were not found wanting among their peers in their schools and
Neighborhood. The last born among them has been asking their
Mother how she could find a right partner for herself, when the
Time comes. Her mother has been postponing answering her until
One weekend when they are all around and she called all the five
Children together to talk to them on how she finds their father and
They become married to each other. And she would later share other
People’s story with them to learn from, to know that the issue of
Finding a right partner is not "stereotypic", what works for person A
May not work for person Q, individuals need to know what works
For him or her and stick to it in life, especially in getting a lover.
When I was young I used to dream a lot, and my dreams used
To come to pass. Every member of my family used to call me,
“The Dreamer of the family” because they know hardly would
Anything that I dreamt about not come to pass. This continued
Until I got to institution and come across your father, initially there
Was nothing between us, but that night, I dreamt about him and
Discovered that we were playing together. When I woke up
I know that we shall become exceptionally good friends.
It was not long after this that we started communicating.
Initially I thought the relationship would not
Leave the stage of friendship but it turns out that it was not so, because
Another dream I had showed that we were married in the dream,
In the dream he takes care of me very well. It was after this dream that
I know that we shall end up marrying. But this time your father was been
Seeing someone else, your father loves the person he was romantically
Involved with for he used to talk about her to me. That was when
I started having feelings that the dream may likely not come to pass,
But I continued my lifestyle with him. Until one day when I visited
Him that he shoved me off, saying he does not want to see me.
He chased me out of his presence like a dog, I was surprised,
What could have been the matter, have I wronged him in anyway?
I searched my heart and discovered that I have
Not in any way wronged him. I gave him sometimes before we
See each other, the next time that we see that was when he
Apologized to me for what he did the last time I visited him, he told
Me that his spouse has call it off with him. I tried to ask of what
Could have necessitated that, but he could not give me satisfactory
Answer. We continued like this and then he starts to notice me, and
When he gets over what has happened to him we started our
Relationship until we consummate it in marriage. We really
Studied and know each other even before our marriage, that
Is the secret behind our relationship. What I, however, want
To tell you is individuals differ, what works form me may not
Work for you, but there is something inside of us all that
Will tell us whether we are on the right track or not. If you have
A feeling like that, do not ignore it, try it out it may work for you
(Other stories she shared with her daughter for them to know that what works for person Q may not work for person X would be shared in other articles)

Cheryl E Preston, ma, yours is a saner climate compared to ours, ours is full of spurious converts, it is a place where a person could claim to be saved for decades all because he/she wants to see the nakedness of an opposite sex and after achieving his aim bolt off, but in your land, you speak what is in your mind and act what is in your mind, no hypocrisy because of getting a man or guy... Thanks for reading through.
